Leicester City will consider renaming their stadium after Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, sources within the club have told ESPN FC. The club is also due to build a new $100 million training facility that will bear his name.

Riyad Mahrez scored the only goal as Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League table with a 1-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur.

"Leicester City's Premier League fixture at Cardiff City this Saturday will go ahead as scheduled, as the club continues its tributes to its late chairman, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha", a statement read.

Srivaddhanaprabha's son Aiyawatt, who is the club's vice-chairman, is widely expected to step into the role of chairman, and is said to support renaming the club's stadium to the Khun Vichai Stadium, using the Thai honorific.

"It's odd", he had said, "because my feeling is the worst feeling I've had in the five years that I've been here".
